    Default Engine light on and shudder

    Hey Everyone I have a Mazda 3 MPS (only had it 2 weeks) and it's started to have a miss (under load) and now the engine light has come on. Anyone have any idea's? I'm really freaking out as I've only just got it

    First thing would be to find out the code...

    Second, don't go WOT any more... Baby it...

    Could be anything from impending engine failure to just a spark plug misfire...

    Diagnostic trouble code.

    The dealer should be all over it.

    after this , if your car survives ( knock wood/ metal) buy a Cobb Access port either v2 or v3 , you can get the DTC in less then 10 seconds

    good luck man

    Hey Skeetskeet, oh man I hope it survives I've only had it 2 weeks!!! I'm looking into a COBB, would you have any suggestions (other than say ebay) on where to get one? Also a reliable Cork supplier?

    Thanks

    Edge autosport for the AP and corksport for corksport parts. You can find APs at a few aussy shops too, sometimes for good prices (I would avoid mpsgarage though) and sometimes for sale on here too.

    Is this a dealer used car? If so, all dealer used cars come with a 3 month statutory warranty, so legally they should fix it.

    Hey Hicksy! Hope your car gets sorted soon, never good when it happens, let alone when you've had it for only 2 weeks!
    As others have said, edge autosport or RPM for most things, corksport for corksport obviously. I do however have a Corksport Stage 2 SRI coming up for sale in about a month if you can hold off? Haha.
